Bought this awesome looking phone about 3weeks back.
The features of this phone were unbelievably good, so blindly bought it.
The battery is pathetic. I have never seen a phone so bad.
I have read and re read every possible post regarding battery for this phone.
Even SE has released videos regarding (dont you think the company itself has realized what a big blunder they have done with this phone and working hard on damage control)
It takes good 5 hours to charge the battery and it drains with just a couple of phone calls.
Imagine the battery dies overnight. A fully charged phone plugged out at 10pm after charging the whole evening drains out in the morning when i get up ( mind you the brightness is kept to zero level and all kinds of networking turned off).
I just cannot believe this phone. How can the battery be so pathetic. Since the day i have bought this phone its spent more time on the charger than on my hand.
All the features in this phone is absolute waste, considering few minutes usage drains the battery down to 10%.
You really cannot get to use the phone even for basic making call and messaging for few hours in the day, let alone its GPS, WiFi, bluetooth and so on.
A complete negative investment. I would advice no one to go for it unless some needs a good show piece on your plug-point.
Considering selling this phone right away.
If anyone is considering buying this phone reading all the cooked up good reviews, mine is on sale at through away price.
how to zoom the camera and how to use Bluetooth coz am not able to use this features pls help me out
jowell, 28 Sep 2010I have always used SE since 2006 with my first K750i then K550i that both had long battery cha... moreHey buddy nice to c u sticked on SE for so many yrs.. well batery backup issue in X10 is not handset fault.. the android OS itself is very power consuming. pl install "Advanced Task Killer" app is available in android market for free. wit dis app u can close all unwanted app which runs background. keep phone in 2G network mode wen u not using any 3G Network. this shouls help ur phone last for 1 and half day. Well let me tel u all Android based phone gives similar batery back up. u'll not find any Android phone which lasts for more den 2 days.. Cheers n enjoy ur X10..
If u wanna go 4 a small phone, definitly u need 2 have this phone. It s awesome.
[deleted post]up to 260Euros....but it's worth the momey, believe me, you will get full android phone with 600Mghz cpu, 2Gb memory card, 5Mgpx camera, qwerty keyboard, well, by the way, if you don't find your app in the market, you can add it via PC, the app should be .apk extension, and then just install it, however there are 50,000apps/games in the market. The first program you should get is Bar code reader with which like in any other android phone you can read with your phone camera any any applications' bar codes in your PC monitor and you will be directed to download in the market. The most important is that apps/games are FREE, even the DEMO ones are totally usable and they are also under FREE category. Youtube, Facebook everything comes smoothly, browsing is awesome experience too. I highly recommend this mini PC to anyone who likes high tech, but for those who need only phone/sms and rare internet I wouldn't recommend this, because it is more a PC than it is a PHONE.
Hi im just bought the xperia x10 mini pro for few days back .
im facing the problem ..when im using email.. i can rec'd the mail but i cant send out the mail
and devise bluetooth cant be use.
im have do many setting , still cant help
what sh i do ?
I have always used SE since 2006 with my first K750i then K550i that both had long battery charge life and the later had very nice photo shots!
In 2009, I got the walkman and gave it out then P1i whose features are great, but after afew months, "J" stopped working, battery charge only lasted 4 hours standby and 30mins talk time. The software was flashed out and it worked for a month but with battery charge issues. It was replaced after it hunged one day. Lost all data & numbers.
Still had the same battery issue but this time standby was 5 hours talk time appx 1hr. Threw it away afew days ago and got the X10.
X10 still has the same short charge time yet the seller said & showed us a 382hrs Standby on 2/3G and 4hours talktime table.
Which smart phone with equivalent features has the longest battery charge tym and by how much?
Disappointed SE-Fan Jowell
So far so good. Good applications to download from android market. But cannot zoom d camera in image mode or video mode nor can I create any folder to store the downloaded applications.
The worst mobile I have ever used. Don’t buy it. Got it changed to a W995 which is 1000 times better.
I had this phone for 2 days.
Was hooked by awesome features and size of this phone but from the moment I switched it on I had problems.
My speaker didn't work! (no-one could hear me speak when I made or answered a call)
Phone was on "English language" but certain applications on the phone asked if I wanted "Zulu" or "Xhoza" languages before I could open applications.
Bluetooth you have to download first!
Took it back emmediately!!!!
I would NOT recommend buying this phone!!! I've had it for one month, and I admit I luved it to start but there's a really serious bug with it that hasn't been solved by anyone and loads of people are experiencing it! It's resulted in my phone NOT TURNING ON for over a week!!!! Kinda annoying don't u think. I'm selling as soon as I get it fixed! Google 'xperia x10 mini won't switch on' and see the reviews!
Any buy if you want but if one week/month down the link this happens to you...you'll wish you hadnt!!!!
X-SonyEricsson Lover, NO MORE!

PrabuArun, 25 Sep 2010I would like to know weather the Android OS 1.6 is Upgradable or not... can anyone answer me
... moreYes, it is upgradable.
Great phone, but the battery life is not good. By adjusting the brightness you gain some extra hours.
jurc, 26 Sep 2010can someone tell me, if i can upgrade OS from android 1,6 to 2,1?There will be an Android 2.1 update for X10, X10 mini & X10 mini pro released by the end of october.
I read the previous reviews AFTER buying the phone. Fortunately. Because I would not have bought it if I had read them before and would have missed out on such a great phone.
I used HTC diamond touch 2 previously. it was a complicated phone. I have had good experiences with sony ericsson phones. Xperia x10 mini pro is no exception. it is user friendly, easy to type, fast and cute looking. i have not tested the battery life yet, but it is not a big problem as the phone can be charged connected via USB to a laptop. the best part of the phone is that you can customize the shortcuts on the main screen so that it is convenient for you to access applications you use frequently.
this phone is great for people who does not like complicated smartphones, who does not stare at the phone 24 hours, who mainly use the phone to call, msg, take occasional pictures and all other basic uses.
not sure if the slider will last.
